Hi everyone,

I thought it was lost after I moved on to a different employer, but my
former colleague Michael Magyar managed to dig up some work that we
had done back in 2015.

I unfortunately do not know if my branch still exists, but it looks
like his copy of it is still intact.

https://github.com/magyarm/bluetooth-next/tree/feature/nl802154-get-active-scan-req
https://github.com/magyarm/bluetooth-next/tree/feature/nl802154-beacon

We had some additional changes for wpan-tools. Hopefully we can find
those as well.

These changes should allow us to create something along the lines of
Network Manager for IEEE 802.15.4 or even to do some automated channel
joining, etc.

Let's keep this thread open and try to rebase patches & get some
patches posted for review soon.

Cheers,

C

Hello,

We are working too on the same kind of features, I am “ni” on
#linux-wpan. For the moment, we have a quite advanced branch for
scanning (active and passive) which tries to mirror what is done in the
802.11 stack, written by David, and another branch for joining a PAN
by Thierry.

I would be interrested to see a rebase to better understand what you
have done.

I asked David to prepare a branch to share so we can see how to move
forward.

Nicolas.

Very good to know that this is a feature that is of interest to the
greater community.

Should be available soon - possibly a week or 2. Need to set aside some time.

Thank you!

It's quite possible that we have duplicated work, but such is life.
Let's get these features in soon!

Cheers

Thanks! We will also need a week or two to rebase, cleanup and cope with
the other parallel urgent tasks :)
